Ant-Man 3 Trailer Makes It Clear That Scarlet Witch Is The Only One Who Can Defeat Kang

There’s only one character who can stand up to Kang and actually challenge him. It’s the Scarlet Witch. But why? Let us tell you that

Marvel Studios has released the second trailer of “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” and it shows how powerful Kang actually is. For the first time we see him actually use his powers and he unleashes two powerful bolts of blue energy out of the palms of his hands.

Ant-Man is clearly outmatched here since in a shot he looks beaten up but Kang doesn’t even look tired. In such a situation, there’s only one MCU character who can defeat him and that’s the Scarlet Witch.

Why Scarlet Witch Is The Only One Who Can Defeat Kang?

In the new “Ant-Man 3” trailer we hear Janet say that Kang can re-write existence and he can shatter timelines. This means that he controls time itself, which is a power that no hero with physical strength can match.

While Scott might be able to get out somehow (or maybe not as per some theories), but he won’t be able to end Kang completely. But there is one character who can give Kang a run for his money and that’s The Scarlet Witch.

In “Doctor Strange 2” we see Wanda rewrite reality and Wong later on says that she is prophesized to either annihilate the cosmos or rule it. This isn’t an empty throwaway dialogue. It emphasizes that her powers are going to continue growing. And it looks like she’s the only one who can pose a real threat to Kang.

However, we need to consider that Kang is still more powerful than Wanda. Having control over existence and timelines is a greater power than controlling reality and cosmos. But if Wanda’s powers continue developing, then she along with Doctor Strange and others might be able to stop Kang.

How Will Scott Defeat Kang In Ant-Man 3?

Scott Lang will be in a difficult situation in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” movie. He will probably enter into an agreement with Kang where he will get the villain what he wants in return for having more time with his daughter.

Going by the second trailer, it doesn’t look like Kang will hold up his end of the bargain. So the two will get into a fight. During the fight, Scott said that he doesn’t have to win, all he has to ensure that both of them lose. It will be interesting to see how Scott actually ensures that Kang loses. But will he also die during this?

Scott’s dialogue brings to mind another character who said something similar. Stephen Strange in the first “Doctor Strange” film said to Dormammu that he will lose again and again. So Dormammu was the one who was trapped in there with Strange. So he was able to defeat his villain by trapping him in a time loop.

Will something like this work for Scott? We don’t think so because unlike the Dark Dimension that’s beyond time, Kang actually controls all of time. Also, right now, Scott doesn’t have anything similar to the time stone.

However, time works differently in the Quantum Realm. So will he be able to use that to defeat his opponent? We think that Scott’s shrinking and enlarging abilities will also play a role here.

What do you think? How will Scott make sure that Kang loses in Ant-Man 3? Let us know in the comments below.
